senator that's done more to help america's heroes adjust to life after the military. that's just one of the reasons why she will be sorely missed. here's another reason, though: kay has fought time and time again to promote tax relief for hardworking texas families. in thehooin the mid-1990's, shed create the so-called homemaker ira to make sure that stay-at-home moms and dads were able to save for their retirement on an equal basis with their counterparts who worked outside the home. i now it is one of her proudest achievements and i'm proud to join with the senator from merrell, senator barbara mikulski, in attempting to rename this ira the kay bailey hutchison spousal ira in her honor, and i hope, mr. president, we can join together and honor senator hutchison by getting that done before we close out our business this year. kay, of course, has always championed the state sales tax deduction, which may not seem like a big deal to others in this carriage carriages but it . but it is a big deal in texas. we don't have a state income tax. but we do pay a state sales tax. and of course
security. in latin america, in africa, in europe and elsewhere. the past decade of war has reinforced the lesson that one of the most effective ways to address long-term security challenges is to help build the capabilities of our allies. we have seen this approach with our counterinsurgency campaigns and iraq and afghanistan, and our counterterrorism efforts in yemen and somalia. we are expanding our security forces assistance to a wider range of partners in order to address a broader range of security challenges in asia-pacific, in the middle east. and as i said, in europe, africa and in latin america. to implement this element of the strategy, the services are retaining the security cooperation capabilities we have honed over a decade of war. and making investments in regional expertise. for example, for the armies new structure, they are able to, in fact, engage on a rotational basis to assist other countries. the entire u.s. government is working to make our security cooperation, particularly for an military sales, more responsive and more effective, to cut through the bureaucrac

that was going on, unbelievable. 1965, america took the step to become a compassion nature nation where we would take care of the elderly. proposals that have been talked about, the republican budget basically terminating medicare or whittling away at it, increasing the eligibility age from 65 to 67, what is a person to do when they are 65 and cannot get private insurance and at the same time they want to do away with the opportunity that exists in the affordable health care act for an exchange that could possibly provide the insurance. they want to do away with that. come on. this is america. this is where we take caref the elderly and provide the services. medicare can be dealt with. we can deal with the inflation in medicare and in the affordable care act, many things were done to start on that process. for example, keeping seniors healthy, providing for the annual medical checkup, making sure they had the drug benefits, making sure that part d was available to all seniors, closing the doughnut hole in the medicare part d drug benefit. electronic medical records. infection rates in hospitals
every income tax filer in america is going to pay a higher rate come january 1 unless congress acts. i believe it is important we protect as many american taxpayers as we can. our plan be -- b will protect american taxpayers to make $1 million or less and have all other current rates extended. i continue to have hope we can reach a broader agreement with the white house that would reduce its spending as well as have revenues on the table. it would be better for our country. at this point, having a backup plan to make sure as to american taxpayers are affected by this increase as possible, moving down that path is the right course of action for us. >> good morning. all our hearts and prayers are with the families in newtown, conn. as a father, i cannot imagine the under her -- the utter horrow those families are going through right now, grieving the loss of their children and loved ones. as the speaker said, we remain committed to try to minimize the impact on hard-working families and small businesses in this country as far as tax increases are concerned. we look to find the answer on
. but then that will require some other tax. that would be my big request like everybody else. get america's finances under control and that will take both parties. it will take taxes and it will take reduction in commitments that have been made. it now can be validated. let's get this but do it in a way that exacerbates the uncertain economy. the second -- we have to happen through innovation. whether it is the space program or tax credits for renewable energy. all that is important. we have to keep that going. that will get hard because we will face is demographics. that is my 74th birthday on april 7. i am aware of the and aging population which i have become and we are an aging population relative to what we were. luckily, we have millions of fresh arrivals that are younger and are energetic and they come from all over the world. we have to make sure our education system lifts them to their highest aspirations. when the society ages, it tends to -- it declines. that is the big demographic imperative. i was reviewing one of my favorite books on the roman republic. how did this village on the tiber grow
the bully pulpit. if there is ever a humanitarian mission here in this congress or in america for a bully pulpit, it has to be this. we have to have emotion to overcome. just a slight example eliot i want to press on because i knew these individuals. the dixiecrats that president johnson had to work with, they were standing in the way. they were not going to pass or move on the 64 civil rights act or the '65 voting rights act which gave the opportunity for a young lady named barbara jordan to come the united states congress. but they were not going to move. if any of us -- why don't we send all of the congress to see lincoln. we need a lincolnesque moment. we need a johnson moment. we need to respond to the surge and that surge needs to overcome the procedural hastert posture and actually the speaker needs to be able to lead on this question. what will america do together to answer this question? i'm going to be getting statistics to show us that when we had the assault weapons ban it has been documented that the

think we all know that every income tax in america will pay a higher rate in january 1 unless congress ac acts. so i believe it's important to protect as many american taxpayers as we can. our plan "b," would protect the american taxpayers who make $1 million or less. have all the current rates extended. >> andrea: well, the white house promptly rejected it. >> the alternative here if you think about it with the so-called plan "b" it makes no sense. historic opportunity here to do something that has been set as a goal to reach bipartisan compromise on significant deficit reduction on the order of $4 trillion. talk all the pieces of it and put them together. we are close to being able to achieve that. president demonstrated with obvious willingness to compromise and to move more than halfway. >> andrea: i have to go to you first, dana because you heard the words "obviously." >> dana: obviously. obvious terrorism. it's obvious! obvious. if they think that it's obvious -- i do think they overestimate how much the american people are willing to wait on this. speaker boehner has basically w

going into approximately 300 different accounts in various banks, the top of which was bank of america, followed by jpmoan chase, and then wells fargo. melissa: wow. >> so there are a lot of different things that he is doing. he hasn't targets those big three banks. he targeted all kinds of brokerage firms. melissa: i've got a lot of questions right away. first of all if he is on youtube talking about what he is going to do why isn't he able to be stopped? how was he able to steal $5 million already? >> he is basically saying i'm in russia and i can't be touched that is how he is looking at this. he is saying beyond the western law enforcement agencies and russian law enforcement agencies can be bought by me and all the people in his organizatio melissa: doesn't make sense when we saw a lot of same banks attacked by cyber hackers. they were trying to crash the website of the banks and slow you down and be convene anti-. now someone is trying to steal money and said hey that is good idea, let's steal some money, right? >> right. they are trying to steal your credentials. one way to do t
slaughtered in america. >> reporter: he's now open to the possibility of banning large magazines. after getting a call from president obama today, manchin put out a statement saying "we must work together to keep our precious children safe." in congress, three democrats with long histories as gun control advocates are taking the lead with proposals to ban both military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. show me how this works, how quickly can you change a magazine? >> it's out; it's in. >> reporter: but at a northern virginia gun store today, this instructor said banning large magazines like this one with 30 rounds is futile. >> he could have had ten-round magazines and changed those just as quickly before police got there and it wouldn't have made one difference in the carnage that he caused. >> reporter: he wanted to show us the 60-round magazine, scott, but he couldn't because the store has sold out its entire inventory of about 2,000 large magazines in just the past four days. he said gun owners are snapping them up because they're worried they will soon be banned. >
